Sometime between now and the end of the year…..

Slabbed will garner its one millionth page view for 2013 shattering last year’s site traffic record. Thank you for being in that number. Following are links to Slabbed’s top 5 site traffic days in 2013:

  1. October 11, 2013 (A date with no posts.)
  2. February 25, 2013 – Live coverage of Aaron Broussard’s sentencing
  3. November 7, 2013 Arrests made in DMR Investigation
  4. August 21, 2013 Slabbed solved the mystery of the lusty radio show host and Cabbie
  5. January 18, 2013 All hell was breaking loose around that time. Of the next 5 busiest site traffic days in 2013, four occurred within three weeks of January 18 including January 30, 2013, which would be #6 on the top 10 site traffic days of 2013 here at Slabbed.

Thank you for being in that number.

For starters we need to set the field and for that I link this article from Gambit which lays things out nicely. For the mayor’s race in particular let’s begin with this very recent article by Andrew Vanacore at the Advocate and this article circa 2010 by the T-P’s Bruce Alpert. The aftermath of Michael Bagneris not getting an Article III appointment to the LAED is one of the major drivers of Bagneris’ decision to run against Mayor Mitch.
